GC Aesthetics, the experts in silicone, has now launched Silgel™ direct to the consumer for the first time. The go-to product for scar management, Silgel™ is a clear, non-sticky, pure silicone gel, which is clinically proven to be effective in treating both new and existing hypertrophic (red) and keloidal (raised) scars.
Having long been used by Surgeons as part of their patient’s aftercare for over 15 years, Silgel™now looks set to revolution the consumer market.
Scarring is an issue that affects nearly all of us, a fact that is reflected in the continued growth of the scar treatment market. In 2014, the global market was valued at $15 billion, yet by 2019 this value is expected to grow at 10% and to reach a colossal $24 billion! 1 This extensive growth is attributed to our growing focus on aesthetics. Where once we may have lived with scarring, a desire to always look our best and a growing awareness around the effectiveness of OTC scar treatment products has fuelled a movement to combat scarring from our daily lives. In addition, with more consumers than ever having surgery – both medical and aesthetic, it is no surprise that those seeking out a solution to combat post-surgical scarring now dominate the demand in the sector, accounting for up to 32% of the market. 1
The launch of Silgel™ to the consumer marks a key step in addressing this increasing demand for effective scar healing solutions.
“Using our extensive silicone expertise and feedback from surgeons we have created an effective and easy to use product to fade away unwanted scars. We are delighted to now bring to the consumer for the first time. If we can help our customers live a happy and confident life then we are succeeding in our values and aims.”
Ayse Kocak, CEO of GC Aesthetics
Developed to reduce the visibility and flatten the scar, Silgel™ works by creating a barrier on the skin which helps to retain moisture and in turn, encourages the skin’s own natural healing process. The result is a smoother, softer and more even appearance.
